Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is the second time at this hotel (Feb 2017 and again in April 2107). This is an older hotel - but very well maintained. The service is excellent with helpful and professional staff. Breakfast is beautiful. Location is excellent. Mr Shankar Kannan (Duty Manager) was so helpful and professional at check-in - he was customer and solutions focussed. Top...

Fabulous Muscat hotel....a little older but extremely well maintained. Good sized rooms, perfectly clean, and as always, wonderfully comfortable beds/linens. The pool area is great and the public beach couldn't be much closer. A few restaurants to choose from and a good variety at breakfast.

We stayed in a king club room. Breakfast was included. Afternoon tea and a happy hour from 6 till 8. Free wi fi. We also had a free trip round Muscat with a driver. It was well worth the extra paid for the club room. Rooms were spotless and beautiful toiletries. The only downside was the new hotel being built...

If you're traveling to Muscat and want a quiet, but not too quiet, place by the beach, (without paying a fortune), this is the right hotel for you or your family. There are three pools: a kiddie pool, lap pool, and lounging pool, with a convenient little bistro with open seating nearby, called Tomato. FYI: The fruit smoothies are wonderful...

Stayed here on business and found it exactly what I expected from a IHG hotel. Luxurious and sprawling although it was hard to find restaurants in the hotel but found a large one outside attached to the hotel that was really good.
